E Street Band saxophonist Clarence “The Big Man” Clemons is said to be in “responsive and stable condition” after suffering a stroke earlier this week. Now, one of his most recent collaborators, Lady Gaga, has posted a 13-minute compilation of well wishes to her official YouTube channel.
Gaga has been tweeting her love for the acclaimed musician since news of his health problems first surfaced. On Monday, she asked her legion of fans to “make some get well videos” for Clemons, who she calls “my very close friend.”
Later that same day, she tweeted, “In bed with Mommy thinking about Clarence, I can't wait for you to see the beautiful video we made together. He's a really special person.”
Clemons lent his talents to two tracks – “Hair” and the current Billboard top 10 hit “Edge of Glory” – on Gaga’s mega-selling album Born This Way. Of working with Gaga, Clemons told Rolling Stone, "It was a day I'll never forget. When I left the studio, it took me a few days to come down. What she does, man, it just blows my mind.”
It seems she feels the same way.
